Summary

After receiving my Bachelor's degree in Digital Media from UVU I began a new career working for the Church developing digital content for world wide distribution. The project I was involved in had me building and testing a product for distribution in 13 languages on mobile platforms. Much of my work involved; asset management, formatting, optimizing, getting intellectual properties approval for use of all images, selecting images for international use, testing, all while adhering to branding guide. I feel the knowledge and experience I gained at the church would help you meet your goals of reaching your new and international markets.

Some additional things about me:

  • I am adaptable, reliable, and proficient
  • A proactive technical minded problem solver 
  • Effective communicator 
  • Quickly learn new technology
  • Detail Oriented
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

As the lead creative on the LDS Pamphlets app for the Missionary Department, John Perl has worked under my direction as a media producer and production designer since March of 2014.

 He has displayed extraordinary focus and a dedicated work ethic throughout the duration of this project. His responsibilities have included photo retouching, intellectual property, and publishing digital content using Adobe AEM Mobile. He is always on-time to work, provides reliable results and is a team player. He goes beyond his responsibilities to ensure the success of the project. He is also fun and a pleasure to work with.

I would highly recommend John Perl and would consider him a valuable team player who delivers effort and consistent results.
